USAMRMC New Products and Ideas

Please Read!

This website uses SSL encryption on all pages except the Home page. There is an issue with most commercial web browsers (IE, FireFox, Chrome, etc.) that might display a certificate security warning when you try to reach an SSL-protected page.

If you get this warning on the MRMC-NPI website and your full displayed domain name is mrmc-npi.amedd.army.mil, you are not at risk.

The safest and preferred way to resolve this issue is to install DoD root certificates into your browser (see MRMC page Problem with this Website's Security Certificate? for detailed instructions). You can also proceed at the certificate warning -- which creates a security exception in your browser -- but does create a potential vulnerability where someone could read the information you are submitting through this website.


The United States Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC) utilizes the New Products and Ideas (NPI) system as a mechanism to have visibility and evaluate new products and ideas, currently configured or in development, that support our mission. The NPI provides a means for our subject matter experts to assess these products and ideas, evaluate their applicability to USAMRMC's mission, and provide feedback to the submitter. It provides the vendor an opportunity to showcase their product or idea without needing to travel to Fort Detrick and without giving anyone an unfair competitive advantage.

Submission to the NPI is not a substitute where other vehicles are more appropriate, such as responding to Requests for Proposals (RFPs), the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) or Program Announcements (PAs), nor does it take the place of a pre-proposal that may be required by a BAA or PA.

USAMRMC does not award contracts, provide research grants, or offer other forms of financial support through the NPI. Likewise, USAMRMC does not purchase or obtain programs, services or products through the NPI. All requirements and funding opportunities are advertised through fedbizopps.gov and grants.gov. Please visit those sites to view current solicitations and announcements.

Frequently Asked Question

What is the purpose of NPI?

The intent of the New Product and Idea (NPI) website is to serve as a gateway to partnerships with the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command (USAMRMC). Submission to the NPI is not a substitute for other more appropriate vehicles, such as responding to Requests for Proposals (RFPs), the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) or Program Announcements (PAs), nor does it take the place of a pre-proposal that may be required by a BAA or PA. NPI provides a mechanism for submitters to obtain feedback with respect to USAMRMC's interest in their products, services, or ideas, without requiring an extensive submission.
